Tomato and Cabbage Soup with Grilled Basil Cheese Sandwiches.

Cabbage soup number two!  FYI, this is still the cabbage from the last share. I haven’t even started on this week’s cabbage.  Wasn’t there some kind of fad diet, where you could only eat cabbage soup, but you could eat as much cabbage soup as you wanted? I think I am inadvertently on that diet. All kidding aside, this soup was really good. I think it is my favorite thing that I have made with the cabbage so far. One of the cans of diced tomato that I used was fire roasted, so it had a little spicy kick to it. Kapow!

I made the sandwiches on multi-grain sourdough with the mozzarella cheese from my CSA share. I added a little torn basil because basil rocks!

  1. That soup looks wonderful! I like tomato soup, but I generally always want something with more substance to it. I think the addition of the cabbage and couscous would be perfect!

    • I feel the same way! I honestly tend to think of regular tomato soup as more of a condiment. It’s what you dip your grilled cheese into. But this soup definitely held its own. Thanks for stopping by!
